Celebrating the best of winter at Winter Fest

Celebrating the best of winter at Winter Fest

There was a wonderful sense of community at DRA’s Round Top Farm on Sunday as approximately 200 adults and children turned out to enjoy some old-fashioned winter fun. DRA and Great Salt Bay Community School’s PTO partnered to offer this year’s Winter Fest as a part of Great Maine Outdoors Weekend.

Happily, there was just enough snow on the ground for a dogsledding demonstration (small passengers only!)

A fire pit helped ward off the chill, and was perfect for roasting marshmallows.

The ice rink was crowded with skaters. Ice skates of all sizes were available to borrow, and wooden braces helped learners keep their balance.

Skating is hard!

Adults and children alike enjoyed socializing with the friendly sled dogs.
